The Advantages of buying a Westbrook House and Land Package
Buying your first property is exciting but finding the perfect block and deciding on the perfect home design that suits your lifestyle now and will grow with you can feel overwhelming. That’s why a House and land package at Westbrook can be a desirable and affordable option for buyers looking to enter the property market.
Here are just some of the benefits of choosing a house and land package at Westbrook.
1. Pricing certainty
Often house and land packages offer a fixed price, which can be appealing for buyers with a strict budget. It’s often reassuring to know exactly what’s on offer and what you’ll receive in the end. Of course, many builders also provide upgrade options to the home at an additional charge, allowing you to personalise certain aspects of your home.
Another great option for first home buyers, choosing a house and land package means all the work required to find the right block that’ll fit the right home design has been done for you by the team at Westbrook and one of our building partners.
3. Access to a variety of land sizes
The team at Westbrook work with Australia’s leading home builders to offer buyers an exclusive range of house and land packages on a variety of block sizes. The range of land sizes will allow you to choose the perfect house and land package that’ll fit within your budget and will be conveniently located to fit within your lifestyle.
4. Buying new vs buying an established house
Buying an established home will often entail compromise or ‘future projects’ to make it just right! However, a house and land package at Westbrook offers you ‘just right’ from the moment you step through the front door. It will also ensure that the home is energy efficient, a modern design, includes a warranty period and is located in a community where you belong. Westbrook is a masterplan community located just 24 kms from Melbourne’s CBD. Westbrook sits in the centre of one of Melbourne’s fastest growing communities, Truganina. It is surrounded by a host of childcare centres, along with both government and private primary and secondary schools.
Tarneit Central Shopping Centre just across the road and the Western Ring Road is nearby for easy access to the northern suburbs or drive straight down Leakes Road and take the West Gate Freeway to the CBD or Geelong.
Alternatively, many residents use Westbrook’s onsite train station, Tarneit railway station, taking advantage of the easy 30-minute ride to the city.

5. Government incentives and other savings
There are many different financial incentives when choosing to buy a house and land package at Westbrook.
Probably the biggest saving is stamp duty. In Victoria, buyers only pay stamp duty on the value of the land as the house hasn’t been built. When buying an established home, buyers pay stamp duty on the total cost.
It’s best to speak with a financial advisor prior to purchasing a house and land package to find out what other grants could be available.
Best of luck with your property journey and remember, the Westbrook team is here to help. We look forward to welcoming you to the community.
